Smoke and tar on the nose with the bell pepper, leafy tones and black currant fruit of Cabernet Sauvignon over milky oak tones. Rich and smooth on entry with the added density and flavors of Cabernet Sauvignon, which is well-integrated but obvious. There’s a touch of wood spice here, and some wood tannins that poke out on the finish, which is a bit short, but shows rich blackberry and black cherry fruit. A well-made wine, but not my style of Chianti. 87pts

The 2000 Chianti Classico's deep ruby/purple color is followed by dense, monolithic, ripe, concentrated, chewy fruit that has not yet taken on the secondary nuances found in the 1999 and 1997 Chiantis. The 2000 reveals good sweetness and body, and a long, heady finish. This excellent offering should drink well for 5-8 years.

The 2000 Chianti Classico Castello di Fonterutoli, effectively speaking the Riserva bottling even if the house chooses not to call it such, is darker and blacker in color and with a notably more sizable and expansive nose which features graphite and tar along with its berry fruit. The flavors are solid and well sustained, but the slightly dryish tannins on the close, coupled with a higher than usual acidity, point to the difficulties of the vintage. Drink 2006-2014.

Bright blackberry, mineral and lilac aromas. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, long finish. Very well-crafted CC. Drink now through 2003.

Good ruby-red. Aromas of geranium, violet, coffee, and caramel oak are pretty but lack depth. Sweet and supple on the palate, with a smooth texture. This uncomplicated wine is very easy to enjoy.

Very dark, rich and chocolately - and pretty darn oaky, too. But oh, what size and power. The nose is pure hickory smoke, leather and black fruit, while the palate overflows with cassis, black plum and pepper. The mouthfeel is silky yet aggressive, with big tannins and pulsating acids. And the coffee and cacao on the finish go on and on.

Plenty of plum and berry character. Medium-bodied, with good fruit, medium tannins and a good finish. Always a good wine for the money. Best from 2004 through 2007.

The 2001 Chianti Classico confirms that this vintage will be offering much gratification. A full ruby in color, the wild cherry and black currant nose, lightly oaked, and the fresh, round, vigorous flavors give a wine comfortably above the appellation average. Drink: now-2008.
